“I’m 50 years old and live in a village in Al Hasakah. Those who live in villages must depend on agriculture and animal husbandry. My two children and I depend on the agriculture of tomatoes, cucumber, and zucchini in the summer, and we sell the surplus and benefit from it. We also plant broom corn, use them to clean the house and animal barn, and sell the remaining ones. We do this so we won’t need plastic brooms, which don’t last long and cannot be used in cleaning the barn. Village life is difficult, but it is also meaningful. Everything you eat is unique to you. You plant it and also sow it. This has made me genuinely attached to the village lifestyle.”
